We are here to Help you through the Coronavirus Pandemic

Discovery Place is temporarily closed due to restrictions related to COVID-19.  Please know that we will re-open as soon as we possibly can, so that we can continue to serve your Sunday School classes and small groups once they are able to meet again. Several points to remember:

  • If you currently have a resource that you haven’t been able to finish, please keep it and finish it with your group when you are able to resume meeting.  We would appreciate it if you would email us (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) with the resource number and your anticipated completion date.
  • If you would prefer not to finish the study you were doing when we closed, please send it back and place an order for a different resource to use instead. The new resource will be sent as soon as we are able to safely do so.
  • If a resource was scheduled to be mailed to you while we have been closed, we will contact you before we send it, to see how it fits into your revised schedule. We can adjust dates as necessary.
  • If you don’t currently have a resource in your possession or reserved for future use, we would LOVE to help you find something! After this time of separation and isolation, folks will be eager for the fellowship of meeting together, so take advantage of it!  Please place an order and we will send it as soon as possible when we re-open.

We would love to help you get started with a new resource for your class or small group!

I look forward to serving you!
